Anna and Mark Bennett recently got married with a 100 of their nearest and dearest at the lush Yarra Ranges Estate Monbulk, in the Yarra Valley. I sang with the very talented band Jazz Notes and we enjoyed curating songs for their Filipino-Australian wedding. Anna told me “I had a picture in my mind, Mark and I want to give our guests a relaxing and elegant music experience.”
Before the ceremony, while guests waited for the beautiful bride to arrive, I sang ‘Over the rainbow,’ and ‘Can’t help falling in love.’ Jazz notes played ‘What a wonderful world’ and ‘How long will I love you’ for the recessional.
Chilled easy listening music continued in canapes and dinner. I performed a mix of Jazz standards and contemporary love songs. We performed some classics such as ‘Fly me to the Moon,’ 'Let’s fall in love,' ‘Someone to watch over me,’ ‘Will you still love me tomorrow' and some pop songs ‘All of me’ and How long will I love you.’
We were thrilled to be able to do a live version of Al Green's ‘Let’s stay together' for the couple's first dance. I was told this song holds a special meaning to the couple.
Thank you so much Anna and Mark for having me and Jazz Notes perform at your big day!

The wedding ceremony of Sharon Mendes and Rodger Maslamoney was beautifully modern and at the same time a traditional church wedding. Their church wedding was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Middle Park. From my experience, most Catholic churches does not offer provision for non-liturgical (contemporary, not religious) songs at weddings but Sharon and Rodger were given permission to choose modern and Christian pop music for their day. At their request, I was able to sing "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts, "From the Inside Out" by Hillsong and some contemporary love songs such as "A Moment like this by Kelly Clarkson and "You're the Inspiration" by Chicago. Even with some modern songs during the ceremony, the focus was not on me as a performer but on the couple and on the songs that have good meaning. It tied perfectly to their religious wedding service. Congratulations Sharon and Rodger!
There are many factors that go into music decisions any church will make. If you are planning a Catholic church wedding or religious ceremony, it is best to consult your officiating minister first as what is allowed in terms of music varies among churches in Melbourne.
I sing some liturgical or traditional church music. If you need a ceremony singer I am here to help.
Chrisy Sparks and Mat Polley have been together for 27 years before tying the knot on December 9, 2017 celebrating with family and friends.
When I spoke to Chrisy on the phone about her wedding music, I thought they were just having a big old party because she told me there is no program or run-sheet. She said she wants the wedding to feel casual-relaxed - and that informal approach to planning just put me at ease with them too.
Their wedding was held at the Brolga Room of Healesville Sanctuary, on a sunny afternoon with lush grass lawns that makes you want play Frisbee and with gum trees around you'd think you are in the bush.
I started singing while Chrisy and Mat grabbed a drink and chatted with friends. I saw mainly local Yarra Valley beers and ciders being served, some guests stretching their legs on the expansive lawn and children running around outside. After an upbeat but heartfelt speech from Mat and Chrisy's son Matthew, the couple took the dance floor and I sang "All of me" for their first dance.
Songs while dining include the couple's favorites - "From this Moment on", "Love me like you do," "Can't help falling in love," You're the Inspiration" and "Thank You (Dido)."
All, in all this was a fun, casual wedding, still done to the nines but with ease. Thank You Chrisy and Mat and family for having me and my husband on your big day!
and nice to meet you Sam from De Silva Lining events. I know you had something to do with how cool and blissfully unstructured this wedding was.
